'Charm City Kings' Star Lakeyria 'Wheelie Queen' Doughty Charged With Murder

Baltimore dirt bike rider Lakeyria Doughty, known as “Wheelie Queen,” has been charged in her girlfriend's murder.

Doughty, 26, starred in last year's Sundance hit and HBO Max original film, Charm City Kings. In addition to murder, she's also been charged with second-degree assault and assault with a deadly weapon.

Officers responded to the 911 call on Friday morning and police say that this is Baltimore's first homicide of 2021. The victim, 33-year-old Tiffany Wilson, died of a stab wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A police probable cause statement obtained by People Magazine states, "Investigation revealed evidence of a physical altercation throughout the apartment, which included displaced furniture, scuff marks on the walls, and hair and jewelry consistent with having been forcefully removed from a person during an assault. The kitchen where the victim was located showed a significant amount of blood evidence and a large knife with suspected blood on the blade and handle."

Doughty told police that she came home to find Wilson "on the floor suffering from a stab wound and holding a knife." However, she told 911 dispatchers that they "were having an argument when the victim produced a knife and stabbed herself."

Medical examiner investigators at the scene said that the injuries to Wilson contradicted with Doughty's statements to officers. She reportedly denied to officers that they had an argument and we're fine. But when police checked her phone, the messages  "painted a very disturbing picture, one where the victim was breaking up with Ms. Doughty and wanted her keys back. The victim repeated this comment over and over in the text messaged for Ms. Doughty to leave her alone and to meet the next day to get the key back." Still, the statement says  "Ms. Doughty stated there are other messages on her phone that are not confrontational and paint a different picture of her relationship.

Police also say that the couple had prior domestic abuse calls.
